Airmail Mac 3.x

How can we improve Airmail?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Composer overhaul

    I know this is rather a summary of different "ideas" and not all are new but I am afraid that 15+ ideas with 4-5 votes will never get the attention so I figured I'd just summarize them. So maybe it's me but I think proper email formatting is a basic functionality that should be given. The way the composer works today is beta status *at best*:

    * Everytime I add a bullet or numbered list via markdown editor, I get double spacing between the bullets/ list items (when I paste from Byword, it looks fine!)
    * In general, there is…

    • Include attachment content in search results

      Include text-based documents (doc, txt, pdf, etc) in the search index. So when a search query appears inside an attached document, it shows up in the search results, this could be made optional via a checkbox.

      Ideally the search results would show the context of the searched query inside each matched result and when clicked, it would show the document where the matched search query is highlighted.

      Gmail already has this functionality but due to privacy concerns I'd rather use my own IMAP and mail client.

      • Link Tracking + Read Statistics

        Next to the normal Read Receipt we need a plugin for Link tracking like Polymail as example.

        And also a read receipt statistic like "When , where and with which device"

        Thanks !

        • Search reverts to inbox

          When I search for something a list of matching messages appears. But when I start clicking on those messages to examine them in the preview window I only have few seconds to read before my search clears and I am taken back to the inbox of whatever account I searched in. The only way to avoid this is to double-click the message so that it opens in it's own window but this is really cumbersome especially with conversation threads. It has to be a bug: why wouldn't Airmail assume that I was to stick with the searched messages until I…

          • Pending e-mails (similar to todo/star)

            When I send an e-mail that needs reply I currently star it so I don't forget it. This allows me to archive. I could use the todo option instead, but don't want to clutter up my todos with these. The ideal option would be to have a pending category that works like the todos do

            • Automatically add recipient when their name is mentioned in the body with "@"

              Countless hours have been lost waiting for a response from someone I forget to add to an email chain. I usually mention people with "@" appended before their name and it will be super useful to have Airmail automatically add the person's name to the recipients (To: field) once they have been mentioned in the body and have their "@name" highlighted within the body.

              • Improve threads and no. of emails synced

                The conversation view is terrible and as it is at the moment for me almost unusable. Here are some suggested improvements:

                1. Include sent items in the conversations - I want to see if and what I replied.

                2. Placing the conversations under the latest email is not practical. If there were a lot of replies I have to scroll through all of the quoted text before I reach the conversations and all I wanted is to see them. I do not know exactly how to change this, but it is annoying.

                A feature to sync only last few weeks…

                  • Follow-up reminders - so much room for improvement!

                    Love that we can set follow-up reminders to outgoing email in the event of a non-reply. However, the execution of the idea, in my opinion, leaves something to be desired:

                    1 - please arrange for the reminders to be moved automatically when the email is answered. Needing to do this manually, remembering which emails have been answered, is unnecessarily time- and energy-consuming.

                    2 - please use clearer flags for emails that have gone unanswered. I know we receive a notification each time the deadline passes, but this hovers in the top right corner of the screen for a few seconds…

                    • Sync passwords and account settings across multiple devices.

                      Still a royal pain to add passwords and server settings for 15+ accounts.

                      • Only group emails when part of a thread

                        I like that Airmail groups emails as conversations but IMO the feature needs more options.

                        Right now I'm getting emails that aren't true conversations grouped together, e.g. where I get two emails with the same subject line. These emails don't follow on from one another and both require a separate response, but since Airmail groups them and automatically expands the top email, the others are effectively hidden and easy to miss.

                        Can we have an option to only group emails where there is a genuine thread of conversation between two people, rather than grouping by subject line? It must be…

                              I have a very hard time finding attachments. They are placed randomly in my emails. For example, a recent reply from a third person says "please find these attachments". They are placed randomly "near" the bottom in a completely random place. In apple mail i can click the paperclip icon to see and download the attachments. In Airmail I have to *hunt* through the email to find where they randomly are. I have to open apple mail to download attachments instead of this frustrating attachment hunt. What is going on?

                                Could you integrate the Virtru SDK so it works with Airmail? I need encrypted email!!

                                I'm a long time Airmail user. I'm a physician. At home, I use my iMac. But while at work, I use my Android and a web browser to check email. Virtru is an encryption service that makes it quite easy to encrypt outgoing email. It integrates directly with Gmail (via a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox), has its own apps for Android and Apple, as well as an Outlook plugin.

                                But it does not have Mac support (besides the iOS app). So I end…

                                  I bought Airmail 3 for Mac and there is something that really breaks my workflow.

                                  After performing a search, the search box is automatically cleared and the filters are gone, thus presenting the origin inbox. This is really annoying. I loose a lot of time researching.

                                    • Ability to select PDFs as attachments (iOS 11)

                                      This is in iOS11 so could just be a bug, but at present after hitting the paper clip to attached and browsing iCloud, I cannot select PDFs to attached them. I can select most other common file types.

                                      • Deleting contact always deletes first item matching address, not actual clicked item

                                        I had an address appear several times in my Address Book, using different names. I tried deleting the erroneous ones by clicking the "Info" dropdown and "Delete", but this every time seemed to delete the first item in the list, not the actual item that I wanted to delete.

                                        • Default 'from' email address to the inbox being selected

                                          I have 4 email addresses configured in Airmail. Right now when I pick an email inbox and then choose to compose an email, the 'from' field is defaulted to a particular email address. Each time I have to remember to select the correct from email address before I send which is proving to be a difficult task. Please automate the from email address to whichever inbox I have selected or to which email address the email was sent to in the first place.

                                          Airmail Version 3.3.2 (442) on macOS Sierra Version 10.12.2 (16C67)
